Yeast raised waffles
 
By far the finest waffle known to man.

1 package of active dry yeast
1/4 cup warm water
2 tablespoons table sugar
mix above ingredients in measuring cup to proof yeast.

1-3/4 cup milk scalded then cooled
2 teaspoons salt
3 eggs
1/4 cup butter softened
2 cups of all purpose flour

proof yeast then add to other ingredients and beat until smooth.

Cover and let it rise for 1.5 hours in warm place.

stir down the batter, cover again and let rest in fridge overnight. (8-12 hours)

Make waffles. If you can't handle this part without direction, disregard above list and buy some Eggos until you step up your waffle game.

If you're feeling crazy, add a couple strip of cooked bacon to the batter once its poured into the iron and let bacon amazingess bake into the waffle.

I suggest pairing with a nice cup of fresh coffee and Baileys, or perhaps a proper breakfast stout such as my Maple Brown Porter.

Cheers!:mug:

I need a waffle maker... It's one of those things that's been hard to justify getting. This sounds delicious though. I wonder how it would work as pancakes

My SWMBO laughed when she saw that the waffle maker is hard to justify. She seems to think that as homebrewers we have tons of gear that would be way harder to justify than a $20 waffle maker. But seriously i think this would make some badass pancakes too. I sometimes add a cap ful of vanilla, if i was to try this in a pancake i think some fresh berries of some sort would be amazing in addition. Let me know how they turn out.

Sounds good. Thank you for the recipe. A new Sunday morning waffle coming to this house.

Lol!! Good point! My brew gear all gets used twice a month though, and a waffle maker may only come out a few times a year

I bought a waffle maker. Wife MADE me! I just buy the instant pancake and waffle stuff and make it easy on myself. Tastes pretty good with syrup and goodies on top. I just don't eat that much of that kind of stuff anymore though.

I wonder what I wort reduction syrup would taste like on top??

I've perfected pancakes (cooks illustrated buttermilk recipe ftw), but I have completely failed at making non-box mix waffles. Most of the time they turn out with the same taste and consistency of cheap ice cream cones.

I'll give this recipe a try. I only have a Belgium waffle iron but I would assume it wouldn't make much difference?

Been there, done that. Wasn't impressed at all, tasted like a loaf of multigrain bread that was made into a sweet candy. However, invert syrup is pretty tasty on pancakes. Or do the like the Brits and eat your pancakes/waffles with granulated sugar and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice. :D

What's the difference between a Belgian waffle maker and a non Belgian waffle maker? Either way this recipe is geographically neutral.

Best purchase I have made

I pulled the trigger on a Waring commercial style waffle maker and I say it is a must in my family now. It is one of those flip style large ones that takes up serious space. but the golden brown crisp restaurant quality waffle was so worth the $50. We make waffles at least twice a month and my Daughter and Wife love them. I have tried the above recipe and love the yeast risen styles. Pick up some Belgian Pearl sugar and I feel like I am back in Germany all over again.
